Plan showing the countryside around the town of Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire. Beaconsfield lies at a crossroad and attracted a great deal of through traffic. Outside the town are several farmsteads and a paper mill. The hamlets of Forty Green and Knotty Green are shown. Hall Barn was a large mansion built in around 1684 by Edmund Waller, a well known poet and Parliamentarian. His family had in the 17th century bought the Manor of Beaconsfield. This was drawn by a cornet of the K.D. guards stationed at High Wycombe, most likely as a student project.
